Fixed gear cycles, also called fixies, are basically bicycles which have drive-trains without any freewheel mechanisms. In 2014, this type of cycle has become quite popular among urban cyclists just because it is a lot simpler to ride as compared to the more advanced multi-gear cycles. These bikes come with drive cogs that are bolted into the rear wheel hub directly. This is why the back wheels turn in the same direction as you pedal. This makes it easier for cyclists to apply weak brakes... Topics: bike deals, bicyle, fixed gear cycles
A cop routinely pulls over a messenger on a fixie and cites her for riding without brakes. She goes to court to prove that a fixed gear bike’s drive train, combined with the power of her own legs are a brake, able to satisfy the requirements of the law. You must be able to skid the braked wheel on dry level pavement. In the case that all fixie riders have been waiting for, the judge rules the defendant guilty and an appeal is prepared. Also, we remember two leaders of the forty year old and... Topics: fixed gear, fixie, bicycle, bike, brakes, portland, messenger

In conversation with Julian Bray, a journalist and rider with the Rapha Condor team.
